London - Arsenal received the most Premier League prize money last season despite finishing behind champion Leicester.

Second-place Arsenal received £101m because more of its games were broadcast live in Britain.

Leicester, which earned £93m, was only shown regularly on domestic TV in the second-half of the season when its improbable title challenge appeared more realistic.

Tottenham (£95m), Manchester City (£97m), Manchester United (£96m) had bigger pay-days than Leicester despite finishing from third to sixth.

Half of the British TV revenue is split equally between the 20 clubs. A quarter of it is distributed depending on a team's finishing place and the remaining quarter based on the domestic TV appearances.

Commercial and international broadcast revenue is split equally.
